Featuring a Stunning Springbok Antelope Design by Coert Steynberg
Both faces of this coin take their designs from the gold series. On the obverse is Otto Schultz's left-side portrait of Paul Kruger. Kruger served as the third President of the South African Republic and was an important, though controversial, figure in the country's history. Schults shows Kruger with his famous long, thick beard. Alongn the rim are inscriptions of the issuing country's name in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA."
Coert Steynberg's reverse design features the country's national animal, the springbok antelope. The graceful creature is shown from the side as it bounds across the South African plains. The coin's date, "2020," is split by the creature, while its name, "KRUGERRAND," arches over it. The inscriptions "FYNSILWER 2 OZ FINE SILVER" and "R2" note the coin's weight and face value on the bottom portion of the rim.
